In the General Model Theory[1] Stachowiak defined a n-tuple with model[2]. It appears that very consistent with the definition on model as use.

Stachowiak defined <M, O, K, t, Z> as a n-tuple of five parameters (of which) comprising an object O and a model M representing the functional operation F, M= F(O). The object M is a model of object O at time interval t and in reference to the objective Z for a K-system K. [2]

Understanding by Niemeyer’s paper, the M is model; O is the original of the model, i.e., the object the model modeled; K is the system using the model as a substitute of the O at time interval t with Z; Z is the goal or purpose for K.

It seems very close to the situation in model as use: “where the role carries certain properties of a thing directly or indirectly and works by the properties“. I see this is a certain case of the situation in Model as Use, and I think, is it the case that suitable for all uses of model? The functional operation F, M = F(O), of course, is a mapping. This implies that the model in the Stachowiak’s 5-tuple is one of the types of model in my thoughts, but not all.
